About Wavves

Hitting the indie rock scene with a big splash, Wavves' 2010's album King of the Beach was a marriage of grunge guitars, punk attitude, and slacker bubblegum that propelled Nathan Williams' group to the head of the blog rock class. Though it wasn't the first music Williams had made -- he had released many confusingly self-titled albums previously -- it was when all the pieces truly came together. The years that followed charted a winding path that saw the band release albums, hook up with a major label for the slick Afraid of Heights in 2009, get dumped by said label, and turn themselves into a reliable maker of modern grunge-punk who aren't afraid to take chances (as on 2018's sample-heavy You're Welcome) or dial it down for some chill balladry as they do on 2021's Dave Sitek-produced Hideaway.
